The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB), has alleged that Fulani herdsmen are being used to establish Emirs in places like Owerri, Enugu, Benin, Agatu, Abeokuta and other towns where Federal Government plans to create grazing colonies. MASSOB made the claim while insisting that Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen were keen in an agenda to overrun all towns in Southern and Middle belt parts of the country. In a statement by its leader, Uchenna Madu, the pro-Biafra group also commended Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State for rejecting to cede any part of the state for the establishment of Cattle colonies.
The statement reads, “We salute the eloquent courageous spirit of Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu for opposing the anti peoples federal government policy which only favors the Fulani and their cows. “Establishing colonial village for Fulani herdsmen and their cows simply means allowing a known enemy to dine, wine and sleep with a hated opponent.
